What should you look for to verify that a Rack Protector has undergone a valid impact test?
Look for an independent test report from a credible organization as evidence before purchasing a rack protector.
A large percentage of racks use less than 1.9mm(0.075") thick steel rack profiles. For this reason use only rack protectors that have been impact tested on 1.9mm profiles or thinner.
More than 50% of all impacts occur on the side of the upright. For this reason use only rack protectors that offer both front AND side impact protection.
The standard method of measuring rack damage requires a full frame to be inspected. Question the validity of an impact test if it has not been impact tested on a full rack support frame assembly. Click here to see more.
